I believe the subject of my scholarship may be patentable; does Western’s OA policy have implications for patents?

Western’s OA policy does not change the fact that you maintain full control of your intellectual property. This policy is not intended to alter MAPP 7.16 on Intellectual Property.

If you wish to protect your work through patenting, you should do this prior to openly sharing any scholarship describing the potential patent.
